Rust is the programming language loved by developers for its security and efficiency. Rawnet’s Elliot Dickerson explores how it’s changing the game for multi-purpose programming.
Everyone seems to love Rust (just look at Microsoft’s Windows, Azure teams, Linux kernel maintainers, Amazon Web Services, Meta, and Android’s open source project). But why? What even is Rust? And why will it be important in 2023?
Rust is a high-performance, statistically-typed programming language designed for safety and performance. It‘s one of the most popular programming languages in the tech industry today, with many companies using it to achieve faster performance and ensure their code is memory-safe.
other llanguages, such as PHP, are primarily designed for implementing websites. However, Rust is a general-purpose language which can be used in many different places. While with PHP, you are limited to the options available in the PHP interpreter and the web server, in Rust you can do anything if the time is spent implementing it.
Basically, it makes most things possible without development restrictions.
The much-loved programming language is set to shape the future of web development. Thousands of developers, and growing, use the language; we can expect its usage to increase as
